Label adhesives, storage, and shipping in winter

Every year, winter weather requires us to make plans and preparations for both our personal and professional lives. Frozen water pipes, school closures, and icy streets are just a few of the yearly issues winter can bring. If you live in a part of the country where freezing temperatures are seasonally common it's just a fact of life.

What you may not have considered is the effect colder temperatures can have on your labels.

Curious About Absinthe? Get to Know the Green Fairy

Posted by Advanced Labels NW

Absinthe is arguably the most misunderstood type of alcoholic drink. Disproved myths and legends persist to this day, so we set out to answer some common questions.

 

Advanced Labels provides labels for absintheWhat is Absinthe?

Absinthe is a distilled, anise-flavored spirit with high alcohol content, somewhere between 45-74% ABV, or 90-148 proof. Absinthe's ingredients include the flowers and leaves of the "grand wormwood" plant, green anise, sweet fennel, and any assortment of other herbs used in cooking and medicine.

Absinthe as we know it originated in 18th century Switzerland (though some similar concoctions may have originated in the late 1700s) and was exported around the world, with peak consumption of 36 million liters per year in France by 1910.

Absinthe experienced bans across the world in the early 1900s, due to a temperance movement, hysterical associations between absinthe consumption and mental illness, criminal tendency, violence, murderous rage, and disease, as well as outside pressure from winemakers.

Absinthe was banned in the United States in 1912, 8 years before Prohibition.

Don't Leave Labels for Last! 4 Reasons Great Labels Require Careful Planning

Posted by Advanced Labels NW

No Ragrets Label PrintingWhen should you order your labels, and what preparations need to be made before you do? All too often, packaging is an afterthought. With containers, closures, and labels all needing to work together, you should always plan ahead.

As you take a million little steps leading to your final launch, remember to include label packaging in the early-to-mid planning stages of your product development cycle.

"Fortune favors the prepared mind." - Louis Pasteur

Since the end result of all your planning and hard work is your product on the store shelf, it's not uncommon to assume labels are the last step, or close to it. We see this fairly often with new businesses, but even long time customers can fall into this trap. Here are 4 reasons to plan ahead.
